NEW YORK (AP) - Supermodel Molly Sims will host a new competition reality show about the cutthroat world of accessories designing called “Project Accessory.”

The cable Lifetime network announced the choice Wednesday for host of the spinoff of “Project Runway.”

Twelve contestants will take part in challenges to highlight their creativity and eye for detail when creating jewelry, belts, bags and shoes.

Lifestyle expert Eva Lorenzotti will be the contestants’ mentor. Designer Kenneth Cole and InStyle Editor Ariel Foxman will be judges.


“Project Accessory” is to premiere later this year.

Sims is no stranger to the accessory world. She has her own jewelry line called Grayce by Molly Sims.
